Busted frozen pipe This busted pipe can cause a lot of damage in the winter months

With the cold months right around the corner here are a few tips to avoid a disaster 

  • Keep your house warm and allow the warm air to circulate as much as possible. Seal drafts and keep interior doors open. If you are going to be gone for an extended period, don’t turn off the heat. Keep it set to at least 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
     
  • Open cabinet doors under kitchen and bathroom sinks to allow heat to reach the pipes. Be sure to move cleaners and other chemicals out of reach of children and pets.
     
  • Open indoor faucets, hot and cold, to allow a trickle of water. Flowing water is less likely to freeze. Do this to at least one faucet on every floor if you can. Another tip would be to have someone check your property throughout the period your gone too.
